About the role
You’ll work directly with the founding team to help realize our vision of making a truly fun, engaging educational game that teaches kids how to code, with an emphasis on the fun! We’re a small, scrappy team that all wear multiple hats, so be prepared to do the same. 

You’ll own the end-to-end user experience for children playing Kodable. Everything from introducing them to the world of the Fuzzes to giving our games that little extra ‘oomph’ to keep them coming back for more. You’ll be responsible for things like refining our first time user experience, tightening the feedback loops for our reward systems, refining core gameplay mechanics, and even designing all new games. We’re very collaborative, so interaction with both educators and developers will be a daily occurence. 

Who we’re looking for:

  • You care deeply about programming education
  • You have 5+ years experience designing production-level games, with a focus on in-game mechanics and gameplay
  • You have experience developing mobile games
  • You’re a master of finding creative solutions to difficult problems in the constraints of a small team
  • You thrive on collaboration, design is an iterative process and the first idea isn’t always the best one
  • You are very detail oriented, but know when taking shortcuts is worth it
  • You have a passion for games, and love dissecting and studying game mechanics for fun
Highly preferable if:

  • You have a working knowledge of the Unity game engine
  • You have some experience with computer science
  • You have some experience designing games for kids
  • You have experience working with startups
  • You have experience running focus groups or user-testing sessions
Bonus Points for:

  • You’ve shipped an educational game before
  • Experience with UI/UX development
  • Letting us know why you want to work here! Our founders read every application

About Kodable

Kodable was founded to fill a gap in education currently affecting over 250 Million kids around the world. Not enough kids are exposed to computer science early enough in their education. Our mission is to make programming education accessible to everyone.

We make awesome games to teach kids about programming. Kids journey through the Smeeborgian Universe with a family of furry aliens and learn about programming logic, JavaScript, and game design. Kodable also includes a curriculum for elementary school teachers so they can feel confident teaching along side the game. 

Kodable is already used in over 50% of US schools, and in over 190 countries. Help us continue our mission and expose millions more kids to the wonderful world of computer science!
